The Titans will shop the pick but will ultimately move forward with selecting Tunsil to pair with Lewan to give Mariota a pair of young bookend tackles.
The Browns will get their pick of QBs and Goff is still the top QB of the draft and arguably the safest (which for Cleveland is a good thing).
TRADE - Chargers/Rams swap firsts and Rams send 2016 2nd and 2017 1st to Chargers.
The Rams on the move to LA make a move in the draft to secure Carson Wentz. The Rams are close to being a contender with a great defense and the best young RB in the game, adding a difference maker at QB would push them over the top.
The Cowboys stay at 4 and land what many consider to be the top overall player in the draft (worked well for the Jets last year). The Cowboys can't rely on Greg Hardy or Randy Gregory so adding Bosa at this point is a slam dunk.
The Jags developed a quality set of skill players however, the rest of the roster is still lacking by NFL standards. The secondary is just one weak point on this roster and Ramsey could play safety or corner.
The Ravens were hit badly by injury last year including WR. Steve Smith is coming back but off a serious injury and who knows what Perriman will offer after missing his first year. Treadwell is blue-chip quality WR and would be an instant starter.
The 49'ers were decimated by coaching and roster moves over the last year. One unit in particular was the LB unit that lost Aldon Smith, Chris Borland, and Patrick Willis so selecting Myles Jack is a great position to add a blue-chip prospect.
The Dolphins best corner is arguably Brent Grimes but he turns 33 this year so adding Hargreaves here would be great value to fit a top need.
The Bucs have major needs at DE and CB and Buckner is one of the top players available at this juncture to address their need.
TRADE - Giants/Chargers swap firsts and Chargers send Rams 2016 2nd rounder to Giants.
The Chargers move down then back up to select Stanley. In the end, they still get a quality prospect at a major need position and pick up a future first rounder from the LA Rams.
The Bears need to address the defensive front and the lack of a pass rush. Robinson is a beast in the middle that can get pressure from up the middle.
Smith will likely need to redshirt his first year but his talent is too good to pass up for the Saints who are in salary-gap hell and likely aren't in a position to get back to being a contender next year.
Personally I think Lynch has serious bust quality to him but a QB is a premium position worth the risk. The Eagles have a new coaching staff and Sam Bradford is likely gone so Lynch is the future.
The Raiders missed on DJ Hayden a few years ago and the CB position is a major weak spot for Oakland. Fuller was injured most of last year but is still a premier prospect.
I'm guessing the Giants will lose JPP in free agency so going with a cheaper option at DE is the pick here.
The Lions could go a number of directions here (OT, DE, WR) but corner is another position of need and Alexander is young but is insanely talented.
